East Noble Looks To Continue Winning Ways

KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (WANE) – For many programs a 9-3 record would be considered a stellar season. For East Noble, it is simply par for the course.
The Knights haven’t had a losing season since 2001, a streak coach Luke Amstutz is eager to keep intact during his third season in Kendallville.
“It is just tough kids,” Amstutz says. “Every year I’m like, ‘I don’t want to the one to stop that.’ There’s great tradition set from Tim Able and Chris DePew. I inherited kids that understood how to play and understood how to be tough. You can’t put a price on that.”
Defensively, the Knights will be led by defensive end Keaton Osborn. As a junior he was named first team all-state. Safety Dylan Jordan also intercepted seven passes last fall and returns to lead the secondary.
Offensively, the Knights return quarterback Harold Wolfe and must replace 1,300-yard rusher Brandon Mable who signed with Grand Valley State, running back/linebacker Walker Boyles (Trine), and offensive lineman Connor Holcomb (St. Francis).
Coach Amstutz notes that while this year’s senior class is made up of just 13 players all 13 players will play major roles for the Knights in 2014.
The Knights scrimmage at Concordia this Friday. They open the regular season August 22 at home against Northrop.
